Perhaps this is a little more clear?

After a couple weeks of comparatively bland (in my opinion) tracks, Lemieux is back on track this week at the Tapers Section!

The suite from Springfield is obviously one of the greats from 1974, and the cuts from June 1973 wont disappoint,

But this incredible Dark Star from 6/27/69 in Vault sound is a truly amazing odyssey and easily a top 12 all-time version! Ever heard it?

Has anyone ever heard of the March 70' dark Star played with an orchestra, I read a review in Dead Base about it but have never seen it on trading list or discussed much.

I believe you are referring to 3/17/70 from Buffalo. As far as I know the show doesn't circulate.

A bunch of Dark Stars performed by artists other than the Dead are listed at the bottom of this Clearlight page:

The track listing for Merl's Struggling Man CD as posted at bestprices.com gives songwriting credit to Mickey, which I find to be a little weird.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 11-13-72 Dark Star

6-27-69 is indeed a great Star, as are so many from that year (and the other ones mentioned here) -

One that maybe most people haven't heard comes from 11-13-72, a great "audience recording" that was actually recorded by Bear. Unfortunately, it has been taken off the Archive (though the page remains with previous reviews). This Star is tremendous, my favorite from that fall; it has two meltdowns, the fastest Feelin' Groovy jam ever, AND one of Phil's stomping bass solos that he did occasionally on that tour. An extremely intense listening experience!

Hey CLIFF-just chiming in to repeat myself, as always, with a nod toward 9-19-70. Not the longest, not the slickest, complete with some musical lapses and dropouts (Jerry is absent for a while early on--technological difficulties perhaps?), BUT more heart and soul than any I have heard...

Whoops...brain dead. Brain DEAD.

Just read HF's post and realized my mistake...sorry.
